Microsoft Operations Framework (MOF) 4.0 Available

We announced the new Microsoft Operations Framework 4.0, and the MOF 4.0 online community. Check out Jeff’s blog post over on the System Center team blog. Here’s an excerpt:

So what’s new?  First, where the old MOF talked mainly about operations, the new MOF 4.0 describes the entire IT life cycle, including business planning, project organization can use a common language and a consistent framework for planning and coordinating their activities.
The second improvement is to the design of the content.  If you’re looking for a way to overhaul your organizations service management practices, then MOF 4.0 provides that comprehensive view that will help you choose where to start.  However, if you’re just looking for a best practice around one particular area then MOF 4.0 can help as well, with short (25-page) “service management functions” that can give you ideas on improving a particular function in 20 minutes.
